I have been following Miss Mustard Seed’s Blog, www.missmustardseed.com for a while and adore her style, her home and her Milk Paint line. I love how she has chosen and displayed Ironstone thru-out her home and I set out to gather my own collection of Ironstone. I believe it would be fitting for my own style.
I have a blank wall in my dining room with one Colored Pencil Painting and decided that I would surround the painting with Ironstone plates, after-all there is Ironstone in the painting.
So the hunt and gather has begun. I met a friend at Miss Morgans MilkWeed Antiques, www.morgansmilkweedantiques.com, in Bethel PA to exchange framing (She frames all my pencil projects) and to shop. We had a great time junkin’ and I found 3 Ironstone plates that I could not live without and home I went to fill the wall.
BUT a funny thing happened…. I placed the plates in my kitchen on a plate rail to rest while I gathered the hammer and nails and they looked awesome…what a happy accident! So they now have a new home in the kitchen on the plate rail!
I guess I will need to go junkin’ again! Gotta fill that dining room wall!
